Family Therapy

About

 

Sym Academy is a practice academy specialising in family therapy and other therapeutic family-related work for individuals and couples, as well as training programmes for professionals working with families. As an advocate for the welfare of women and children as well as a firm believer that family is an integral aspect of human society, we offer trainings, education as well as family therapy to spread awareness and educate the public. This is such that many can continue to benefit from the work of family therapy, improve relationships among family members and resolve family conflicts amicably.

 

Sym, which means ‘together’ in Greek, is a dynamic merger of expertise between the former PPIS Family Therapy Institute and PPIS Training & Consultancy, constantly seeking innovation and connection to reconnect relationships and deepen professional capabilities. We render our knowledge and expertise in family therapy through our family programmes islandwide. We are passionate on expanding our volunteers’ understanding towards family dynamics, its importance as well as best ways to advise and suggest possible solutions.

 

Family therapy is the centre of our family-related programmes here at PPIS. We believe that through informed and emphatic intervention, domestic issues and conflicts will be resolved and reduced for the sake of the children in the household. Thus, Sym Academy is established to introduce the benefits of family therapy to families and societies alike.

Programmes & Services

With our extensive ground experience in working with families, Sym is also able to offer consultation, family therapy and a difference in managing change and mindset shifts to organisations through various customised models.

  • Family Therapy for Individuals, Couples and Families
  • Relationship and Family Development Programmes

Expertise & Practice

For families and individuals seeking connection, connectedness and a harmonious relationship, Sym offers a holding space to journey with their thoughts, emotions and interactions through individual/couple and family therapy, conversations, workshops, retreats and relationship learning circles.

As families and employment are interdependent, we also offer a workplace programme, the WorkSpace HR+, alongside family therapy, to complement and support both employers and employees to find common ground and care for each other.

Sym Academy is open to clients of all ages, race, or religion going through intra, interpersonal, and familial struggles. In the event that a minor is seeking for therapy he/she will need to get consent from his/her parents and/or legal guardian. Sym Academy does not have a specific geographical boundary for clients.

Finding the right therapist is an essential step in the therapeutic journey. Our fees are based on the total nett household income as follows:
